A Retro platinum ring with aquamarine, diamonds, and rubies.

The jewelry historian Neil Letson coined the term "Retro" to describe the bold and vibrant jewelry of the period that ran from the late 1930s through 1950, which diverged in style from the earlier Art Deco period of the 1920's and 30's. The jewelry of the period is characterized by the bold, oversized and three dimensional use of precious metals. Retro jewels often feature massive, emerald-cut aquamarines, citrines and amethyst, accented with smaller rubies, sapphires and diamonds. Retro bracelets, watches and necklaces reflected the glamour and enchantment that Hollywood inspired during times of crisis. The movies provided a wartime escape into a world of fantasy and romance that was "larger than life".Size: 7 1/4; can be sized.
